Summary: This is my primary lens for about 75% of all of my photos. I use it mostly for weddings. You don't get second chances to shoot them, so you want a lens that covers a good range to adapt to situations in front of you. The 16-85 mm range gives you the flexibility to handle this fast paced environment without having to switch lenses or cameras. The lens will handle everything from wide landscapes to intimate portraits with a nice bokeh.

Summary: Despite the limited focal length range, this lens is a versatile one for general purposes outdoors or even in museums with fairly poor light. The latter is because the VR works well enough that one can shoot through a small aperture for depth of field, and still be able to hand hold at ISO 1000 or less. All you need in a kit is this one, a good macro and a longer zoom, like the 70-300 VR.

Summary: My copy is so used & beaten, that I am considering buying a new one. It's a perfect allround lens, that I can recommend to everyone using Nikon DX. Much better in IQ than 18-200. I hope Nikon will release a new(better, constant apperature) version soon. If not, I will buy this one again.

Summary: Sharp through the range, great primary lens with a useful focal length. VRII capability is great also with had held shots possible at the wide(er) end at 1/10". Use it as my primary walk around lens. Solid plastic construction, with metal adapter ring being a strong positive. Boken is non existent to weak. Possible to get some development of Bokeh with high magnification.
Summary: good glass Sharp, and well done.Best for crop cameras. Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
